Can QuantumScape Stock Recover In 2022?

QuantumScape's focus in Q1 2022 reporting is about solid-state battery technology development. Investors are hungry for commercial outcomes from solid-state batteries as electric vehicles take off.

It seems doubtful that QuantumScape will have announcements in 2022 that might prevent further share price erosion.
